Sycamore Street embossed card



Here’s another of my launch party Make & Takes, CASEd again but this time at least changed slightly! I was inspired by a card made by German demonstrator Irene Wendlandt but I changed it around to suit my supplies.

I wanted everyone to have a look at the fabulous new mini paper stack, Print Poetry. This is another of those handy little 6½” x 8½” Designer Series Paper stacks which are perfect for cardmaking. For some reason, it also feels less drastic cutting into them for the first time.

Here I’ve made two cards, which differ slightly. One difference is that the card on the left is “debossed” rather than embossed. In other words, I’ve just flipped over the embossed cardstock so that the image is lowered rather than raised. The card on the right doesn’t have the Summer Starfruit layer and, although you can’t really see it, nor does it have the flower and leaf, it’s just plain and simple. I do love these colours – all of them In Colors for 2012-14.

The words come from a tiny little set called A Little Greeting. It’s easy to overlook but you’ll find it on page 25 of the new Spring/Summer catalogue. I bought it as part of the Boutique Boxes Bundle... you can see what I made with that in a few days’ time. Or maybe weeks as I have LOADS of samples uploaded now to show you!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
